What would you like to know. I completed a sports science access course at college then a Sports therapy degree and currently a Physiotherapy MSc. I worked for 12 months in NHS community therapy under Physios and Occupational Therapists prior to the MSc. So can offer advice if you need any. I'm a mature student as well.

Hi
Thanks for your response, I am wondering if u felt the access course prepared you for the degree? Can I ask where u completed your degree? Would you know anyone who completed health and welfare access and went on to do Physiotherapy or occupational therapy, I am hoping to get into Magee university as I can’t travel any further, Thank you 🙏

The access course was really good for uni prep especially 12 years after my failed AS levels. We had about 15 assignments over the 1 year course and they are constant and relentless. Way more than you get a degree level (which increases in detail and critique), so if you can manage them well, it will set you up just fine for the uni workload. It broke me into essay writing and learning really well even when i was so nervous if i could manage before i started.

I did my degree at Uclan and I don't know anyone that did health and welfare access but Id say do what you will be interested in that gives you an 'in' to a physio degree. It sound like Health and wellness will prepare you well for that side of the physio profession, you will come across a lot of students that have no idea that physio is a health medical profession as they are focused on MSK sport injuries in private practice. hope that's ok

Hi
Thank you for your response, I have since received an email that I would need the science access for Physiotherapy entry so I will move forward with OT, your advise was very helpful thank you 😊

Hi I wrote a reply but it didn't post. I'm not doing OT but applied to do a similar funded course. The process is different this year as instead of the hpat exam its a video interview. Access is a really good grounding for moving onto university level study.
